are getting kicked off these exchanges. if your doctor happened to be at one of those hospitals, you don't get to use your doctor anymore. but here's the good news. your doctor was probably substandard anyway so you'll get a better doctor. >> no. the good news is if you have money you can pay your doctor cash. that's what it's like in new york. if there's a doctor worth his salt he isn't in one of these plans because he doesn't need the plan. so he charged up-front on your credit card. >> preside obama will say you have a substandard insurance company in the first place. >> you didn't want your doctor. >> he'll become like my uncle al here pretty much. >> what do you make of this? >> he's kind of right. >> who's kind of right? >> bothf them. the old system was kind of -- their premise is -- >> both of who? >> kind of right. let me explain. the old system wasn't very good. people lost their doctors. >> oh, come on! >> what are you lking about? >> this is the old system times 50. forget it. this is the crummy insurance mandated throw your rationing system we had before just exploded much wider.

'm asking, will it impact holiday sales? yes or no? >> no. i don't think so. >> that's all i need to know. dagen? >> yes. >> jeez, what is up with you guys? it's like mutiny. go ahead. >> we had the run of the place when he was in charge. that's why. >> well, because it who are being dropped, have to buy different insurance at higher prices. even if they aren't writing the check right now or right before christmas, they are going to look ahead and say, hey, i have to pull back. i have to adjust. i'm paying x amount more every month for my health insurarance. i will cut back now. >> we need a behavioral psychologist here. >> all right. adam, what do you think? >> well, i think that charlie -- i hate agreeing with him. but there are bigger factors at play as to whether or not it will be a good or a bad holiday shopping season. far and away the most important factor is how the economy is doing. the botched health care law implementation -- and by the way, neil, he's got you there. you get an e for effort there. but you want to blame everything on obama care. and it could be terrible. and --

where's neil. some asking for ben and only one dig for charlie. that's the way it goes. >> don't tell me that person was at a strip club. >> sounds like it. >> charles what do you make of that, that we already now started addressing the problems with this law but now i'm beginning to suspect come the costs. what do you think? >> well, we're talking already 300,000 into medicaid, a program that was bust to begin with. we're talking about by the way it was never suggested or i've never heard the president say taxpayers were subsidized, health care insurance for people who have jobs, in fact up to 400% above poverty, a brand new entitlement, that's going to cost trillions of dollars, and by the way you had a plan that was supposedly substandard we'll get you a better one, like a banker telling you hey, why don't you buy this million-dollar house you can't afford. history not only repeating it self but exponentially more dangerously so. >> what do you think? >> i think it' a dangerous proposition that we're getting into where you already have marco rubio the senator calling for legislation t

does that mean, fix it? is that what you're saying? i had tom delay on. he said, don't do anything to help this. >> sometimes it's good just to flush it out. >> okay. adam. >> i think that's wishful thinking. i'll try to -- with your permission. to flush it out, that's just not going to happen. it's a nice thought on your part -- >> no, it's like, you know, napoleon coming in and invading russia. let the winter destroy his army. >> what did you say about napoleon? >> he invited russia -- >> adam's point, what was it? >> i'm going to try to talk about the health care costs, especially in corporate america. which is what the point is here. i mean, neil, it's funny, most of you would probably agree that one of the problems, the way health care's been paid for over the past generation is that people stopped taking responsibility for their costs, right, they said, oh, my company will pay for it. the company said, guess what, we want you to pay for it a little bit more. maybe you'll think about some of your wasteful spending or -- just running off to wherever -- >> that might be very --

their job. >> no. it's not happening. >> so what does that mean? >> like one de has resigned. and they don't lose their jobs, and it's somebody else's money. when you're dealing with twitter, these are people -- these executives have money in the company. and ultimately how that stock does and how well that ipo goes off, goes right to tir own wallet. >> three years, guys, three years to get this up and running. three years to launch it. >> i think our grious host made the best point about competition. nasdaq screws up. you go to -- >> hey, that's me. >> you know, if nasdaq screws up, go to the new york stock exchge. and the nasdaq is better in the meantime. that's what the private sector does. that's not what the government does. it will neveget better. >> let's be fair here. first of all, the head of nasdaq didn't get fired. he was on an aplane right after the facebook ipo started. >> but in the meantime, he made the nasdaq better. he fixed the poblems because, guess what, twitter and other ipos have now moved to the new rk stock exchange. so competition makes h better. >> we are complain

in this country. i don't think that people realized the last three credit card reports we got, people have used their cards -- the debt went down three months in a row. $14 billion. there's no confidence in this economy. no confidence in the direction of this country. and it's reflective. and this could be the final nail in that coffin. >> i don't know how you draw the correlation between this and a slowdown in holiday sales right now. >> well, let me -- >> i can do it. >> let me tell you, you arrogant good for nothing. [ laughter ] >> you're paying more for premiums, you will have to pay less -- peopleon't have your kind of money. >> but the haters like you are saying -- >> i am not a hater. i am telling you -- do you think it will affect holiday sales? yes or no? >> mr. neil, you are speaking out of both ends of your mouth, and here's why. on one hand you're saying that the plan isn't going to work. >> no. all i'm asking, will it impact holiday sales? yes or no? >> no. i don't think so. >> that's all i need to know. dagen? >> yes. >> jeez, what is up with you guys? it's like mutiny. go ahead.
